Executive Action on Immigration
President Obama’s New Take on Immigration: What do the changes mean to me?
As part of his efforts to stop to illegal immigration at America’s
southern border and to focus on keeping families together and keeping
criminals out of the U.S., President Obama is in the process of instituting
immigration law that the team at Sarah S. Rama, ESQ, LL.M. has been following closely.
Our goal is to stay informed about these important potential changes so
we can better assist our clients in immigrating to the U.S.
The specific changes that may be enacted by the U.S. government include:
Allowing a greater number of folks to be eligible for the
Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, including anyone who entered the U.S. prior to turning 16 years
old and who has lived in the country since January 1 of 2010;
Permitting the parents of citizens and lawful permanent residents to ask
for deferred action and employment authorization for three years, as part
of an updated
Deferred Action for Parents of Americans and Lawful Permanent Residents program (certain requirements apply);
- Allowing spouses and children of lawful permanent residents and U.S. citizens
to apply for Provisional Unlawful Presence Waivers.
- Updating and clarifying visa programs in order to stimulate the U.S. economy.
A detailed breakdown of President Obama’s pending immigration reforms
can be read at the
